BIRTH TO AGE 2 EARLY INTERVENTION SERVICES

Early intervention services are a collection of services families may need if there is a concern that a child may have developmental delays and/or health care needs. Elkhorn Public Schools provides free evaluations for children from birth to age 2 for early intervention services.

PRESCHOOL PROGRAM (AGES 3-5)

The Elkhorn Public Schools Preschool Program is dedicated to cultivating a community of families and teachers working together to provide a safe, positive, and developmentally appropriate environment for our youngest learners.  Specific questions about the EPS Preschool Program should be directed to Tracie Burton at tburton@epsne.org.

Preschool Screening

Children ages 3-5 interested in attending the EPS Preschool Program must already be receiving special education services or must be identified through our screening process as:

  • A child with an identified disability (in accordance with NDE Rule 51)
  • Children who are at-risk in their learning
  • Children who are typically developing and have reached a level of maturity that would make them a great peer model (Parent Pay)

Preschool Schedule: Monday – Thursday 8:20 am – 11:30 am or 12:20 pm – 3:30 pm

Parent Pay

Students who are identified as typically developing will serve as peer models and will fill a limited number of parent-pay placements each school year. Monthly tuition of $180 is required for a child who is identified as typically developing to serve as a peer model.

Applications for the 2023-2024 school year are now closed.  However, if you have developmental concerns regarding your child, please contact Tracie Burton at tburton@epsne.org.
